Bird Ride Scooters History

Bird Scooter Logo

Travis Vanderzanden founded Bird Ride Scooters, usually referred to as Bird or Bird Scooters, in 2017 in Venice, California. Vanderzanden says that he has been fascinated by transportation since he was a kid. His mother was a bus driver and he often went along with her on the route after school. He watched (and wondered) with fascination at how people managed to get to the bus stop or get home after getting off of the bus.

Believing that bicycles are a thing of the past, Vanderzanden found that people were extremely interested in renting electric scooters, which provide a simple, economical, and green way to “catch a ride.” Scooters can be left virtually anywhere and picked up the same way. The company charges $5 for the rental, then charges by the minute. Bird Scooter parking Vanderzanden solved the recharging problem by adding a section to the mobile app showing which scooters needed charging and where they were located. The company pay $4 per scooter for people to pick them up, take them home and recharge them. All scooters are picked up and put back in their original rental spaces after 9 PM when it’s illegal in most places to ride them due to a lack of lighting on the scooters.

Many cities, however, are unhappy with the electric scooters, claiming that riders violate the laws and that scooters are dumped anywhere and everywhere, causing a nuisance. Vanderzanden says that the company tries to educate people on scooter laws and etiquette but the company itself is not to blame if people don’t obey the laws.

Bird Ride currently has headquarters in Santa Monica, California, known as the “Beach Silicon Valley” since numerous startups have offices in this city on the ocean.

There is a bird scooter left in front of my house. The scooter appears to have been stolen and is in need of repair. It has been at this location for at least two days. The location of the scooter is 17300 Mendota St., Detroit, Michigan, 48221. Please have someone pick up the scooter or I will be forced to discard it. I can be reached at 313-717-XXXX if there are any questions.

This is correspondence between me and Rory and a clear example of your companies inability to police itself and provide adequate community outreach and be a good corporate citizen.

Below is Rory’s email to me and below that is my reply please have a conversation with Rory and never ever contact me with bullsh*t like this again!

Hey Zoran‍,

Continuously writing into HELP using profanity is improper conduct towards Bird employees, which violates the Chargers Services Agreement.

Please keep in mind that you are not obligated to charge.

Thank you!

Best,

Rory

Hey Rory I am not nor will I ever be your customer so I have not signed your terms of service. If I direct profanity towards your company, I am doing just that. I am not directing anything at any individual just your parasite of a company. On a daily basis I encounter your go*dam scooters impropriety parked blocking the sidewalk blocking driveways and being operated in an illegal or unsafe manner. So Rory you tell me where to send my complaints about the mess you and your customers leave behind, because every time I write in to your company I get a reply that assumes that I am a customer (much like today), which makes me think that you do not care about community complaints. Well either that or your company employs complete idiots that cannot read a complaint about improperly parked scooters blocking the sidewalk. Rory please explain why I even have to do this, I am spending my time and mobile data sending you photographs of the offending scooters (which by the way your staff doesn’t even know how to pull the location data from the metadata in a photo) and you still have not remedied the situation? Every time I send a complaint I also send it to the appropriate city department so that they know that you are doing nothing I just hope they do something with the information, because unfortunately not every city can be like Beverly Hills, when I am there I just contact the city and they come and impound the offending scooter.

Rory if you want to provide me with the correct department that will take immediate action to come and take the scooters away please do, otherwise don’t you ever write me another email about my language or behavior you are operating in Santa Monica because the city and it’s residents allow you to. Professional conduct on my part only comes when your company operates in a professional manner, if that were the case we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

I would thank you but you owe me the apology.

With all the negativity to the scooter would you be able to add brake sensors on your scooters to prevent public collision like they have on cars now

I have been a charger for maybe a month or two and have received an email telling me I was in violation of moving uncaptured scooters and then today receive an email telling me my account has been deleted and I am no longer allowed to charge birds. I responded to both emails advising them that I have not moved any scooters or held scooters unless I have captured them to charge. I have seen several people in my complex holding scooters in their apartments until they reach a higher payout and I have reported it and advised of the scooters being moved and yet I’m the one getting in trouble and now unable to charge scooters when I have not done anything wrong. I go out and look for my scooters every night or the nights I am able to at least. I know the rules and have not broken any rules but am being accused of doing so and id like to know who I can speak to about this as I would like to get my account reinstated and continue charging as I was doing it the right way per your rules. Its very frustrating when I am doing what I am supposed to and there are so many people around me who are not and I lose my opportunity to charge when ive been doing the right thing.
